Around the corner from Buckingham Palace in London, Hotel 41’s glass-roofed Conservatory Suite offers plush luxury literally beneath the constellations. Aside from its prime star-gazing set up, guests of the suite can now opt for a package that includes the use of a telescope and guided star book – handy for locating your own star (a gift from the hotel).
Head for heights
Talk about a room with a view. Skylodge Adventure Suites comprises three transparent capsules – wedged 400m up the sheer face of a mountain in Peru’s Sacred Valley. The pods include a dining area, bathroom and enviable views. To get to them, you either have to climb there or hike a trail through ziplines. Not one for the faint of heart.
Sky full of stars
The aptly-named Cabriolet Suite in the hotel L’Albereta in northern Italy features a retractable roof at just the push of a button located next to the bed. Located atop the Bellavista hill in Brescia and surrounded by rolling landscapes and vineyards, the hotel evokes warm Mediterranean sensibilities with its warm colour theme, impeccable service, and luxurious facilities. Perfect if you’re looking for a holiday without modern distractions and more.
